Protecting those in trouble is what Army Ranger Garrett Harding does best. But after helping a feisty redhead toss a couple of losers from her Idaho bar, the woman is anything but grateful for his assistance—in fact, she seems to know him. Worse, she almost certainly hates him.
The only thing Rachel Maguire wants is to send this smart-mouthed, muscled military man packing. She knows Garrett has his own reasons for staying, so when he offers Rachel a deal—two days to prove his worth or he leaves—she reluctantly agrees. Despite wanting to loathe him, Rachel finds herself drawn to his quiet confidence…and the way he fills out a t-shirt.
But when Rachel receives a phone call from the past, everything changes. The stalker who destroyed her life ten years ago is closing in once more. Refusing to put anyone else in harm's way, Rachel hits the road hoping to lure danger away from those she loves. But Garrett won't leave this sexy spitfire to face her stalker alone. He'll do anything to protect her. Even if it means risking his life—and his heart.
Review- 5 out of 5 stars
A non-stop action packed romantic suspense.
The reader is immediately pulled into a tension filled scene from the very beginning where Garrett kicks into action to protect Rachel. The story gains even more momentum as the plot unfolds. Rachel and Garrett find their lives in danger from a stalker who has remained anonymous but scarily ever present in Rachel's life for the past ten years. I kept guessing who the stalker might be but it was so well written I wasn't able to guess correctly.
I love it when authors add a much loved dog or cat in their novels. Although Rachel and Garrett are both great characters I really loved Cowboy, the dog, who proved to be a hero on more than one occasion.
The suspense filled final chapters led to a nail biting and satisfying conclusion.
